22. The Seven Paths Changing One's Way of Walking in the World (Large Print 16pt) - Anasazi Foundation

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Discover the Healing Power of the Wilderness. People have moved away from Mother Earth, bringing heartache, pain, and other maladies of the modern age. The ''self-help'' movement claims to offer peace and fulfillment to individuals, but this solitary approach takes us only so far. Ultimately, it is in communion with our fellow beings and the natural world that we are made whole. We need to leave the path of Me and follow the path of We. This poetic, evocative story presents the meditations of an ancient Anasazi tribesman who rejects his family and sets off on a journey through the desert. He walks seven paths, each teaching a lesson symbolized by an element of the natural world: light, wind, water, stone, plants, animals, and, finally, the unity of all beings with the Creator. The Seven Paths reveals a source of wisdom, restoration, and renewal familiar to native people but lost to the rest of us, seven elements among nature that combine to mend human hearts.

23. Oh Baby... Birth, Babies & Motherhood Uncensored (Large Print 16pt) - Kathy Fray

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Refreshingly honest, openly frank and candidly blunt, this book has been written by a mother for other mothers. It oozes with warm fuzzies, it reeks of mumsy terms, it exudes realism in every paragraph and it is refreshing in its guiltless honesty. Modern first - time mothers are often alone - devoid of once traditional motherhood knowledge and practical support. Often previously self - confident women find themselves inconceivably isolated, hopelessly fumbling over everyday mothering tasks, enduring torturous levels of sleep deprivation, feeling desperately despondent and physiologically aching and leaking everywhere. This book provides supportive, caring advice - one Mum to another - while at the same time serving as an encyclopaedic medical reference regarding the mother and baby. Checked thoroughly by medical professionals, this book is a unique blend, like having access to a kind and gentle GP as well as to all the gems of wisdom of years of mothers' coffee groups. This new title clearly and compassionately explains the ups as well as the downs which are perfectly normal aspects of giving birth and mothering in today's society. This edition is in two volumes. The first volume ISBN is 9781459657540.

Eureka Stockade - The Unfinished Revolution
In 1854, Victorian miners fought a deadly battle under the flag of the Southern Cross at the Eureka Stockade. Though brief and doomed to fail, the battle is legend in both our history and in the Australian mind. Henry Lawson wrote poems about it, its symbolic flag is still raised, and even the nineteenth - century visitor Mark Twain called it: ''a strike for liberty''.
Was this rebellion a fledgling nation's first attempt to assert its independence under colonial rule? Or was it merely rabble - rousing by unruly miners determined not to pay their taxes.
This edition is in two volumes. The first volume ISBN is 9781459651043.

New York Times bestselling author Joy Fielding returns with MAD RIVER ROAD, a sexy, suspenseful novel of murder, romance, and revenge. After spending a year in prison, Ralph has explicit plans for his first night of freedom: tonight, someone will be held accountable. He goes to murderous lengths to learn the address of his former wife-the woman he blames for his fate, and has sworn vengeance against. Determined to bring her to his idea of justice, Ralph's next step is to travel from Florida to Ohio to find his ex-wife's house on Mad River Road. Also in Florida, Jamie Kellogg wakes from an agonizing nightmare of her mother's funeral, and assesses her life: a twenty-nine-year-old woman in a dead-end job, with an ex-husband in Atlanta, a married lover in the hospital, and a virtual stranger in her bed. But this stranger is everything the previous men in her life weren't: tender, attentive and adventurous. After convincing Jamie to quit her miserable job and ditch her judgmental, perfectionist sister, he proposes a romantic getaway. While Jamie wonders if this thrilling man might finally be her Prince Charming, they plan a road trip to visit his son, who lives with his mother on a street called Mad River Road. As riveting and beguiling as Joy Fielding's previous novels, including LOST, WHISPERS AND LIES and PUPPET, MAD RIVER ROAD is a novel about courage, truth and the need to trust one's instincts.

31. The Dream and Its Amplification - Nancy Swift Furlotti

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £25.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

'The Dream and Its Amplification' unveils the language of the psyche that speaks to us in our dreams. We all dream at least 4-6 times each night yet remember very few. Those that rise to the surface of our conscious awareness beckon to be understood, like a letter addressed to us that arrives by post. Why would we not open it? The difficulty is in understanding what the dream symbols and images mean. Through amplification, C. G. Jung formulated a method of unveiling the deeper meaning of symbolic images. This becomes particularly important when the image does not carry a personal meaning or significance and is not part of a person's everyday life. Fourteen Jungian Analysts from around the world have contributed chapters to this book on areas of special interest to them in their work with dreams. This offers the seasoned dream worker as well as the novice great insight into the meaning of the dream and its amplification. Contributors to this edition of the Fisher King Review include: Erel Shalit, Nancy Swift Furlotti, Thomas Singer, Michael Conforti, Ken Kimmel, Gotthilf Isler, Nancy Qualls-Corbett, Henry Abramovitch, Kathryn Madden, Ron Schenk, Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, Christian Gaillard, Monika Wikman, and Gilda Frantz.

33. Creative Meditation & Visualisation (Large Print 16pt) - David Fontana

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Visualization - creating a picture of something in the imagination - is one of the most important powers of the human mind - it helps to convey the message to the unconscious that a particular goal is possible, which prompts the unconscious to ''mobilize'' the latent abilities necessary to achieve it. In this inspiring and practical book, David Fontana shows how visualization can become even more powerful when practised as a form of meditation. All meditation practices give the mind a stimulus, and when a visualized image is used as that stimulus, it adds considerable force to the meditation. Meditation itself helps develop the power of concentration so that the mind can hold visualized images more clearly and consistently - and the better the concentration, the more likely it is that these images will bring results. Practising visualization within meditation has proved to be highly successful in enhancing human performance in a wide range of endeavours, such as healing one's own body, achieving athletic success, stimulating creativity, promoting career advancement and even inspiring confidence in social situations.

34. Quarterly Essay 48 After the Future Australia's New Extinction Crisis (Large Print 16pt) - Tim Flannery

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Australia is home to many animals and plants found nowhere else on earth, making Australians caretakers of a unique heritage in a land that tolerates few mistakes. Yet, in After the Future, Tim Flannery shows that this country is now on the brink of a new wave of extinctions, which threatens to leave our national parks as ''marsupial ghost towns.'' Why are species becoming extinct despite the tens of millions of dollars being spent to protect nature? And what more should be done? In this passionate and illuminating essay, Flannery tells the story of the human impact on the continent. He revisits his Future Eaters hypothesis, discussing how firestick farming helped to shape the ecology and preserve native fauna. He looks at the way recent governments, in tandem with an indifferent populace and a rabid libertarian right, have let environmental knowledge and commitments erode. Finally, he describes new approaches to wildlife conservation and argues that Australia must take the lead on these. This is an essay that rings the alarm on behalf of the natural world, and asks us to think again about protection of its irreplaceable riches. ''Such is the depth of public ignorance about Australia's extinction crisis that most people are unaware that it is occurring, while those who do know of it commonly believe that our national parks and reserves are safe places for threatened species. In fact the second extinction wave is now in full swing, and it's emptying our national parks and wildlife reserves as ruthlessly as other landscapes.'' - Tim Flannery, After the Future

36. Gangsters, Guns and Me Now I'm in Eastenders ... But Once I Was on the Run. This Is My True Story. (Large Print 16pt) - Jamie Foreman

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jamie Foreman is one of Britain's most iconic actors. He is also the son of Britain's most notorious gangster, Freddie Foreman. Jamie's life has been anything but ordinary. Right from the start, his world was one of contrast and contradiction: he grew up surrounded by London's criminal elite, living by their code of honor and respect, yet he himself was brought up to be a ''straight goer.'' The backdrop of his home life was to differ greatly from his time at school as, at seven years old, Jamie found himself in the unlikely surroundings of a boarding school. The happiness of his family and school life was snatched from Jamie when his father was sentenced to ten years in prison for his involvement in the killing of Jack ''The Hat'' McVitie. The subsequent years saw Jamie without the father he adored and the whole family was put under enormous strain. At 14, Jamie decided that his passion was for acting and, having been encouraged by Barbara Windsor, he discovered yet another new environment at the Italia Conti Stage School. Jamie thrived in the acting world and was soon enjoying success on both stage and screen. By the time of his dad's release from prison, Jamie had carved a ''straight'' career for himself - but after years apart, there was plenty of lost time to make up for. Soon, he was dividing his time between acting and assisting with Freddie's ''business.'' Whether on the streets or on the stage, there was never a dull moment; Jamie was living life at 100 miles an hour and loving it. Before long, though, life took a surprising turn when a drug deal his father was heavily involved in went tragically wrong and he was forced to go on the run to America with his dad, which marked the start of a whole new adventure.

38. The Dancer and the Dance A Book of Distinctions (Large Print 16pt) - Jack Foley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Jack Foley's The Dancer and the Dance: A Book of Distinctions deliberately challenges many conventional ways of thinking about poetry. Though extremely scholarly and aware of the ''tradition,'' Foley offers readings rooted in a consciousness which is simultaneously non academic and open to the new. ''The self of this book,'' he writes, ''is not a unity but a multiplicity. Many people would agree with this idea of selfhood - the self as a multiplicity of voices' - but clarification is still required as to how the concept of the self as multiplicity affects literary criticism, how it affects our actual reading of poems. It may be that the self we postulate as we read a poem contradicts the self we experience in the world; it is also possible that familiar poems may be experienced anew by being read in the light of multiplicity.'' Foley's explorations lead him into radically new readings of ''canonic'' work by poets such as Keats, Yeats and Mallarm , into the world of opera, free jazz, New Formalism, and the writing of song lyrics, into ''ethnic'' literature, theater, and finally into problems of ''spoken word'' and ''slam poetry.'' Throughout, his point of view, initially controversial, becomes finally compelling. ''It is possible,'' he says quietly about the whole of Western culture, ''that Plato was wrong, and that we must make an effort to think in a different way if we are to encounter reality at all.''
